Inspired by a bird cage hammered metal silver plated wire has been adorned with a tiny amount of copper and beautiful turquoise nugget beads.
Turquoise, the captivating sea-green stone of the ancients, represents wisdom, tranquility, protection, good fortune, and hope.
Ear wires are plated; I'm happy to change out the ear wires for sterling silver for just a $2.00 up-charge. Please choose 'ss ear wires' from materials drop down menu before placing order.
Wire wrapping is a genre of jewelry which requires pliable wire to be shaped into each piece. As a piece progresses, the wire hardens and sometimes it is hammered to further strengthen a piece. It will retain it's shape, however if you try to bend it or it gets squished, it will bend. Do not place your wire wrapped jewelry in a purse or pocket.
I do my best to take accurate and attractive photos that are true to color, using natural light. Colors will vary slightly from one screen to another.
Stone Surfaces are delicate, take care while wearing.
Copper will tarnish over time. To remove any tarnish you can either use a jewelry polishing pad or steel wool from any hardware store. Just rub the whole surface of the piece to get the shine back. Diluted lemon juice will also brighten the piece. Store the jewelry in plastic bag when not using. Wash the jewelry with a drop of dish soap to achieve instant brightness.
